No, outside of Canada the Habs aren't popular at all. The logo definitely isn't more well known.

Must have been fun when Seidenburg became only the 2nd German to have won a cup

I can't believe that the Islanders are ahead of the Preds!

Detroit, Rangers and Vancouver for Sweden. In that order.

But that's just my hunch.

I also live in Germany and the few hockey fans I've met have been Sabres fans. One was a Caps fan due to Koelzig.

Based on my friends the most popular team in Slovakia is either Chicago (Hossa, Handzus) or Rangers (Gabby in the past). I don't actually know anyone who likes another team, but it is probably a result of me not knowing so much "true" hockey fans (most of my friends only watch World Championships) Oh and as for me, I am a proud Penguin

Pittsburgh is the most popular team in Russia even with good old Red Wings memories and recent Washington hype.
Philadelphia is also widely loved (as much as it's possible in Russia of course).

In Brazil i would say Ducks, Red Wings, Penguins and Canadiens.

A fan made a poll recently, the results so far: http://www.enquetes.com.br/enquete.asp?id=1060657

In the area I grew up Pittsburgh had the most fans by a wide margin. But that was just the guys I was hanging out with and 20 years ago already.

Personal experience and talking to guys on the net. Maybe they're just the most vocal and arrogant, just like all Pens fans

Are you nuts? Most storied franchise, and easily more well known then all the rest if not top 3.

My travels alone have documented such facts.

Tell us about your travels. Considering a country such as Sweden which appriciates hockey, Montreal is one of the least known teams, I would find it odd that other countries would have it well known.

All three teams are pretty close, it's really hard to say. But the Wings sure have more older fans.

The number of the Flyers fans on the Runet is quite bizarre indeed, I just don't get it.

LOL. I don't mean to be rude and I like Sweden a lot but it would seem that you'd be in for a real shock when I tell you that it would almost identical here in Canada. Sweden gets absolutely ZERO coverage of anything whatsoever in this country. You'd be hard-pressed to find anything remotely close the word Sweden mentioned or published in any media-outlet here. You're a tiny country which sadly bears no news-relevance here in Canada.

While working at South America for 14 years:

Most popular teams:
1--> Red Wings/Habs/Rangers
2--> Pens/ Avalanche / Stars
3--> Ducks (talk to them, clearly we can see they like the team because the old logo / the disney movie, don't have any knowledge...

Surprisingly the Stars and Wings fans new a lot about the sport, their traditions and past players. One started to talk about Slava Kozlov and didn't stopped till I walked away.

I think you could add Canada in this discussion, sure we have our own NHL teams but for the areas without, there are many Penguins fans in Nova Scotia for example because of Crosby, loads of Bruins fans in the Maritimes too along with Leafs and Habs fans. Other than that the most popular NHL teams in Canada apart from our own would be the rest of the American original 6 teams.
